Hey running readers! While I’m focusing on being a new mom, I’ve lined up some great info for you in this Spotlight blog series. This is a great way for you to get to know other great run coaches and fitness pros. Who do we have this week?
Spotlight: Susie Lemmer
Why did you become a run coach?
What is your coaching style/ philosophy?
I am firm, but fair, but I want my athletes to know that I am their biggest cheerleader. I want my athletes to laugh, to hate me and question me a little bit at the beginning of a run, but to text me after the run and tell me they never thought they could, but they did.
What piece of advice do you frequently give to runners?
Oh, I have so many “gems,” but one that I always come back to is to “Set yourself up for success, every day.” Related to that is to trust your coach! That means do your homework, find someone that understands your situation: are you a consistently injured single mother with a full time job wanting to run her first marathon? Are you a first time runner? Are you a sub elite runner looking to move up? Do your homework, find a coach that will work with you to get the most out of your work, and if they tell you to do x before every run, do x.
